BOMBARDIER TRAXX AC3 Last Mile Locomotive Receives Official Approval for Operation in Austria

Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation announced that its BOMBARDIER TRAXX AC3 Last Mile Locomotive has been homologated in Austria. This means the TRAXX AC Last Mile locomotive is now approved for operation in the entire DACH region: Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

The TRAXX AC Last Mile locomotive features an innovative support diesel engine accompanied by a traction battery and remote control for shunting. Together, these systems enable this electric locomotive to efficiently bridge sections of non-electrified track (with seamless transition from electric to diesel operation and vice versa). This ability is put to great use in places like ports, terminals, depots or factories where a supporting diesel shunting locomotive is often called in to help trains cross the final, non-electrified, track sections known as the “last mile”.

Bombardier has already received over 240 orders for diverse TRAXX AC3 locomotive variants and, to date, has sold approximately 2,000 units of the TRAXX locomotive platform.
